'The bold and creative curriculum meets the academic needs of the pupils well because it is designed to meet the needs of the context of the school population and individual pupil’s needs.' SIAMS inspection 2019
As a Church school, our vision is that children learn to live life in all its fullness. This fullness involves developing academically, physically, socially, spiritually, morally, culturally and artistically. Our aim is to making learning a life-long passion. We want the children of our school to be respectful and honest with a sound knowledge of right and wrong and the role they have in our school, local and wider community, both now and in the future. Through our broad curriculum, we aim to nurture tolerance of others, self-reflection and independent learning skills, children who have the resilience to solve problems and persevere with new skills using a ‘have a go’ attitude towards their learning. At East Bierley, we follow the National Curriculum. This sets out essential learning, coverage and standards required in all subject areas.
Our curriculum is one of belonging, hope, wellbeing and relationships. Through our vision, ‘always giving: always here’ our aim is for everyone in school to flourish. Our intent is to foster confident, resilient, happy individuals who delight in learning. We aim to nurture our whole school community to develop life in all its fullness: academically, physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, morally, emotionally, culturally and artistically.
We develop our curriculum to meet the needs of our children, there is an inbuilt flexibility that enables skills to be taught at an appropriate level for each class through topics that have relevance and meaning. The Long Term plan is adapted each year whilst ensuring key knowledge, areas and themes are explored.
